(AP) - Officials concentrated their efforts in the hills near Aspen today in their search for accused slayer Theodore Bundy, who escaped from an empty Pilkin County courtroom Tuesday by jumping out a second-floor window. Bundy, charged with killing a Michigan nurse, was in court for a pre-trial hearing when he made his bold escape during a 15-minute recess in the proceedings. Roadblocks were immediately set up around this Rocky Mountain resort town and on major highways as far as 90 miles away. A sheriff's department spokeswoman said officials believe Bundy is still near Aspen and that the sale of guns and ammunition has been banned in the area. Two deputies had been assigned to guard Bundy during his appearance in District Court here, but a witness said she saw Bundy pacing alone in a courtroom just minutes before the escape. The Pitkin County sheriff's department confirmed that Bundy was left unguarded during the recess. But Sheriff Dick Kienast refused to comment on details of the escape, a spokeswoman said. Bundy, a 30-year-old former law student, was charged with first-degree murder in the 1975 slaying of a Dearborn, Mich., nurse, Caryn Campbell. Her nude, frozen body was found beside a rural road a month after she disappeared while vacationing in Aspen. The spokeswoman said the sheriff's department first learned of the escape when a workman walked into the sheriff's office in the basement of the courthouse and asked, "Is it unusual to have people jumping out of second story windows." A sweater left by the accused murderer in the courtroom was cut up into pieces to aid five scent dogs in tracking Bundy. The dog teams worked into the night Tuesday trying to follow a scent left by Bundy when he jumped from the window, ran a half-mile along Main Street and fled into the hills east of town. The scent dogs followed Bundy's trail from the courthouse but lost it in the Hunter Creek -area about three miles northeast of Aspen, said Colleen Curtis, spokeswoman for the sheriff's department. Photographs of the escapee were distributed throughout Aspen.

CAP Wirephoto) Blair to make fine payment DENVER (UPI) -- An Blair was convicted of selling attorney for the Rev. Charles more than $12 million worth of E. Blair, convicted of 17 counts stocks in various church of securities fraud, said the organizations which later filed minister would mail the court a bankruptcy, check this week for part of his $12,750 fine. . Court officials earlier this week said Blair, pastor of Calvary Temple, had paid none of the fine imposed.Dec. 17 by District Judge Clifton Flowers. Blair's attorney and his probation supervisor both said they understood payment of the fine had been stayed pending the minister's appeal of the conviction. But Flowers, who also placed Blair on five years' probation, said no such order had been issued. The attorney, Arch Decker, said Blair would send the court a check for $1,500 covering six monthly payments of $250each. In addition to the fine, Blair was ordered to pay $2,015 in court costs. "This is not the pastor's fault," Decker said. "Pastor Blair was instructed (by his attorneys) not to pay the fine because we had understood it was stayed. He would have made the payments." Jury criticizes Jeffco jai GOLDEN (AP) - A Jefferson County grand jury has sharply criticized conditions at the county jail and said the need for a new jail or remodeling of the present facility "is critical." The grand jury's report said among the problems at the jail are a lack of exercise space for prisoners, no facilities for separating youthful offenders from older ones, inadequate and unclean kitchen facilities and not enough manpower. "In general, it was felt that the present jail is outmoded and doesn't provide the type of ·facility mandated by recent federal regulations and court decisions," the report said. Jefferson County is now seeking state approval and funds to " build a new jail. If you take this quiz in the morning, you can come up with all the right answers by tonight. YES NO 1.

NEW CENTURY FURNITURE 901 Uth Street, Greeley 356-0622 Judge to weigh U.S. blame in Wichita State plane crash WICHITA, Kan. (UPI) - A federal judge says he probably will complete review of pretrial motions today and order testimony in a non-jury trial to determine whether the federal government was negligent in the 1970 crash of an airplane carrying part of the Wichita State University football team. U.S. District Judge Frank Theisi opened the hearing Tuesday but spent most of the Forest fires in Larimer under control By The Associated Press Two forest fires in mountainous areas of Larimer County have been brought under control while a third fire continued to rage out of control near Rifle. Some 300 acres of timber have been burned in a fire that began three days ago in the Big Mountain area about 15 miles north of Rifle, Annabelle Reed, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Forest Service, said Tuesday. Meanwhile,' Larimer County authorities said mop-up operations were under way Tuesday in the Red Feather Lakes area west of Fort Collins and in the Monument Gulch area about 65 miles west of the cily. Those blazes broke out Tuesday afternoon and were believed to be man-caused, authorities said. day on pretrial motions. Several suits were combined, alleging Federal Aviation Administration officials knew or should have known the plane was unsafe, but allowed it to be certified as airworthy. While en route to a football game in Provo, Utah, Oct. 2, 1870, the plane crashed into a mountain near Silver Plume, Colo., killing 32 persons, including several football players, WSU Coach Ben Wilson and Athletic Director Bert Katzenmeyer. The trial stems from 17 suits seeking about $17 million and filed in several states against the federal government and other defendants, including .lack Richards Aircraft Co. and Golden Eagle Aviation, Inc., of Oklahoma Cily. The university and the state of Kansas were placed in the case at the government's request as "third party" defendants. The "third party" designation means that if the government is found liable for damages, it can attempt to prove that the responsibility for negligence should be shifted to the university and state. The only question in the present hearing is whether the government was negligent. Any compulation of damages for action against the other defendants would have to be settled later.
